Ecosystems and biodiversity

Our research is helping to underpin a national effort to halt biodiversity decline and to manage Australia's unique and diverse ecosystems.

  • Monitoring, measuring and conserving biodiversity

    With Australia's biodiversity in steep decline, CSIRO researchers are leading the efforts to build fundamental knowledge on the nature, extent and history of our native species. We work closely with our partner organisations to ensure a consistent approach to biodiversity monitoring and conservation across the country.

  • Managing landscapes for biodiversity

    Our research looks at the best ways to design, plan and manage Australia's landscapes to support biodiversity in a changing world.

  • Managing water ecosystems

    We investigate how water ecosystems respond to different water resource management and allocation strategies, including environmental water flows.

  • National Research Collections of Australia

    We manage a number of collections of animal and plant specimens that provides vital information and resources about Australia's biodiversity.
